The Bryan County Antique Tractor Club plays a lead role in coordinating the show and inviting tractor clubs from other areas. The local club was established in 2001 and has approximately 50 families that are members.
This year an estimated 75-100 tractors and other pieces of equipment will be on display. The tractors and machinery displayed will come from the local tractor club as well as clubs from Marshall County, Murray County, Shawnee and Talihina. Tractor clubs from the Texas communities of Paris, Lindsay and Wylie will also display their equipment at the Expo.
Various antique tractors will be on display throughout the entire Ag-Industry Expo and will be specifically featured during an Antique Tractor Parade. The Antique Tractor Parade will be held at the fairgrounds on the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 17.
Additional activities coordinated by the Bryan County Antique Tractor Club during the ag expo include several demonstrations and kids activities including grist mill demo, hay bailer demo, sawmill demo, buzz saw demo, kiddie tractor pull, and brace and bit.
